    I am 20 years old and i want to start 18 months alevel by January 2018
    My application has rejected by Duff Miller and Bosworth college due to my age!
    Do you know any college which allows me to study for alevel?
    And in your college what's the max age of students,do you have any 19,20,21 years old in your college?
    Thanks in advance 😍😊

    I don't think you'll find a sixth form/college where students your age are taught A levels to be honest. You might need to self-teach or find a private center [which, of course, means you'll have to pay to be taught].

    Aha
    But i contacted some colleges (Ashbourne,kings...)they told me your age is okay
    I think duff miller rejected me due to possibly visa problems
    I want a college which care less about age and possible visa problems

    Ah well there you go, you've amswered your own question
    Just have a search online and I'm sure you'll find a few colleges which will suit your needs. Unfortunately, I can't make any recommendations because I'm not aware of which colleges offer what you want.

    Two words. Access course. They're totally free. Otherwise A-levels you'll have to self-study and they cost a bomb.

    Best way is a HE diploma (which you get from Access courses). They do groups of 3 subjects to prepare you for University, just like A levels but a different grading system. The courses you're on about seem like crappy low level courses, or ones that just won't get you in to Uni.

    Try access courses. Discuss with the Uni's that you're interested in what courses maybe? I'm not sure, don't take my word for it
